Abstract
  • To users, mobile touchscreen devices have appealing characteristics; among these characteristics is intuitiveness, which leads to mobile devices being used almost everywhere by almost everyone to accomplish almost anything. This statement, to some degree, holds for children too. Despite touchscreen devices’ intuitiveness and popularity, we don’t know much about how interacting with such devices affects children. Given that mobile touchscreen devices are both engaging and interactive, one can speculate that such an effect may potentially have some benefits. In this research we test whether touchscreen use over time can contribute to improving children’s tactile skills or not. We also revisit “difficult gestures” to confirm children’s ability to execute such gestures.
